Hamilton NY is very nice and it was the fastest growing town in the Syracuse NY metro area during the last census. It is also home to Colgate University.

Not sure about the college graduate one, but as for home ownership I can see the rationale. Home owners generally are more personally invested in keeping up their homes, and being involved in community. A larger portion of renters than home owners have a more temporary attitude, so less goes into the community.
